Robotics Engineering - BS

The Robotics Engineering bachelor’s degree program provides a broad based foundation in current and evolving areas of robotics, automation and mechatronics engineering. The program focuses on the dynamics of the industry in robotic and mechatronic systems and applications.

Our immersive, lab-based approach integrates technology and engineering applications with contemporary developments in the field.

Upon completion of the program, graduates are expected to:

  • Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering and technology as required by the field of robotics engineering.
  • Use engineering processes to analyze problems, formulate solutions, conduct simulations and experiments and interpret data.
  • Apply written, oral, and graphical communication for the engineering field with consideration for ethical and global concerns.
  • Use techniques, skills, industry related tools and technical literature to complete projects, analyze, and interpret data to formulate solutions to engineering problems.
  • Integrate knowledge, tools, and problem solving skills to implement the testing of solutions to engineering problems.

Through our experiential education options, you’ll have the opportunity to gain work experience at a variety of industry partnership sites.
